Blood Orange Background
"Dev" Hynes was born in Ilford, Essex, UK, on December 23, 1985. He has made New York his home since 2007. While he has been
living in New York City, Blood Orange has been writing and producing for other artists. Traveling around the Big Apple at
night, he listened to music he had been compiling during the day, letting the city's nocturnal subculture seep into the music
in his headphones. While listening to music in after-hour bars, Blood Orange drew inspiration from the identity-blurring work
of transgender icons such as Octavia St. Laurent. Blood Orange is the music of a sordid and yet hopeful New York nighttime.
has produced a lot of music - some was for himself, like when he was part of the group Test Icicles and for his alter-ego
Lightspeed Champion. He has also produced for others: Basement Jaxx, Florance & The Machine, Theophilus London, Solange
Knowles, Cassie and Diana Vickers. Somewhere in the midst of all of this, Blood Orange was created. Hynes has been a lot of
things and done a lot of things, releasing two studio albums as Lightspeed Champion: Falling off the Lavender Bridge 2008
and Life is Sweet! Nice to Meet You - released in February 2010. Under the persona, he also has quite a few official bootlegs.
As Blood Orange, Hynes has released two albums, Coastal Grooves (2011) and Blood Orange's sophomore LP, just recently issued
in November 2013. Blood Orange has many guests on his new album and said the album was very much inspired by New York City
Writing doesn't just come in the form of songs for Hynes. In March 2008, Hynes self-published a small comic
book titled, I'm Asleep - Comics, Photographs and Illustrations, to mark the release of his debut album, Falling off the Lavender
Bridge. It featured comics by himself, Ferry Gouw, Faris Badwan and Gary Card and photography by Hynes as well. The book Punk
Fiction: An Anthology of Short Stories Inspired by Punk arrived in June 2009, which featured a short story by Hynes titled,
The KKK Took My Baby Away. The title was adapted from the Ramones' song of the same name. Described as a "comedy sci-fi monologue,"
the book's proceeds went to the Teenage Cancer Trust. In October 2009, Hynes contributed two comics and stories to the group
CTRL.ALT.SHIFT's comic anthology as well as served as a judge with Mariane Satrapr for a national comic competition. Hynes
also contributed the stories, Behold, King Listpin III and Juice This. The anthology is titled, Unmasks Corruption. There
was a gallery exhibition at London's Lazerides Gallery to correspond with the event, which was launched at Comica. In February
2010, Hynes' first collection of short stories titled, Bad Era Of Me - A collection of Short Stories by Devonte Hynes, was
Today, Blood Orange is still growing, evolving into his own. He, like us all, is ever changing. In his "chamakay"
video, he takes viewers along as he travels to Georgetown, Guyana, his mother's hometown and meets his grandfather for the
first time. It is a powerful clip, and it suggests that even with Hynes in full bloom, there's more growth in store for this
